Martin: When looking for a job I always try the classifieds first.
Patron: What’s that?

Martin: It’s how jobs have been advertised since before the internet.
Patron: Um---?

Martin: And they’re in the backs of newspapers. And I love newspapers.
Patron: What about the internet?

Martin: Would you want to work for a company that doesn’t trust time-tested advertising methods?
Patron: These ads are mostly for antique stores.

  1. David Nuttall says:

    Antique stores that sell things like milk, fruit and eggs that don’t get delivered to your door; music and videos pressed on CD and DVD respectively, or even magnetic tape; books and magazines in “dead tree” printed form. All sorts of antiques show up in these stores.
